Chicago-based Hey Champ has been justifiably blowing up in the blogosphere over the past several months with super-catchy electro synthpop. Just signed to Seattle indie label Townie Records, Hey Champ is headlining this Friday at Rickshaw Stop here in beautiful San Francisco in a “Chicago vs. San Francisco” battle presented by Popscene and featuring several other hot acts like Chicago DJ duo Moneypenny. Hey Champ’s blend of synths, catchy hooks and soaring guitars harkens back to my pro-disco influenced dance/pop music post from a few weeks ago. I expect nothing less than a high-energy, sweaty dance party once these guys take the stage.
Peep the songs “Cold Dust Girl” and “Neverest” below, which you can download at their website.
Tickets are $12 in advance and $14 at the door and the show is 18+. Start your weekend out right kiddies and don’t miss out.
